A Safe Camp Experience

We created our 2021 summer camps with your child's safety as our priority. Our camps follow the guidelines provided by Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County and the State of Ohio.

Summer camp enrollment numbers may be limited based on current state and local guidelines. If updated guidelines allow for additional campers, individuals on the waitlist will receive priority registration.

Here is what you can expect:

* All camp staff trained in First Aid and CPR
* Limited camp sizes
* Reduced staff to participant ratios
* Daily symptom assessments, including mandatory temperature checks upon arrival each day
* Participants are restricted to interact with the youth in their camp only
* Face masks are required for all participants, staff and instructors

Prior to arriving at camp, guardians must assess whether they, their child or any member of their household has been exposed to COVID-19 or has experienced the following symptoms.

  1. Fever within the past 48 hours (without medication reducing it)
  2. Signs/symptoms of seasonal flu (coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath, chills, headache, vomiting, muscle aches, diarrhea)
  3. Any loss of taste or smell

If you, your child or any member of your household is experiencing these symptoms, do not enter the building. Please return home and contact the camp facility immediately to alert the staff to your child's absence.

PRCA reserves the right to update, modify, or cancel scheduled programs, activities or facility operations based on continued changes with COVID-19.

Forms Required for Participation

There are multiple forms required to be completed in order to participate in camp. These forms and the information contained in them help us provide a safe and enjoyable camp experience.

All forms are due prior to participation in camp. Each child participating in camps needs an individual form submitted for them. Once you are enrolled in camp, be sure to keep an eye on the e-mail you provided to us during enrollment, as that will be our primary method of sending information on the Camp Form Process.

Learn more about our process for collecting health history information with the ePACT network.

Request for Modification Form

The City of Kettering invites people with disabilities to enjoy our programs, services, parks and facilities. If you would like to request an ADA modification, please fill out and submit the Request for Modification form, to the right. These forms are also available at all Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts facilities.

Completed form can be submitted:

  • E-mail completed forms to
  • In person at any facility front desk



The City of Kettering understands the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.  We invite participation by people with disabilities, alongside people without disabilities, in our programs, sites, and facilities.

We want you to begin the program on time.  Please note that the Request for Modification Assessment Process can take between 7-14 days, which means participation may not be able to occur until after the assessment is complete.  The sooner we know about you, and how we can support you in our programs, the more likely you will start the program on time.  However, if delays in communication occur, we will delay the start of program participation.  PLEASE REGISTER EARLY AND SUBMIT THIS REQUEST FORM EARLY!
